So I've given up on finding a spector to use as a live/studio bass and I was recommended to alembic. Ive tried two of my father's friends' out and their tone is absolutely superb. One of my fathers other friends used a spoiler for years with Carnivore, and some of my favorite bassists have used them too like Jason Newsted, Paulo pinto jr, Entwistle,, etc... Do any of you have four or 5 string used alembics for sale? Nothing crazy like the only other ones I've seen used for $4000+, but yes; lemme know what you got :-)

This one has been on sale on bass chat UK for a while and last commented on in January so not sure if it's still up for sale but I contacted him today to let him know of an your interest in a lefty.

Thank you so much jazzy :-) I plan on hopefully acquiring my first alembic. If I can't find a spoiler I think It would be cool to send the epic into the mother ship and maybe get the body modded a bit, if possible, and get spoiler electronics put in. It would definitely be a unique concept!

Bump. I've decided to just look for what I want. I'm knocking epics off of the list. Basically just spoilers persuaders and elans now. And similar models of course
